Heading Toward Net Zero

Sustainability Series

Mick Dalrymple

  • ASU Project Manager, Energize Phoenix

Greg L. Brown

  • Principal, Ecosense, LLC

We cannot build our way to a carbon-neutral environment, but we can remodel our way there. Over the course of seven years, green-building expert Dalrymple has achieved a 75% reduction in annual energy use at his circa-1975 Phoenix home through efficiency improvements and renewable applications. Dalrymple presents the applied building-systems principles, lessons learned, successes, and unintended consequences of his endeavor. Brown considers the current state of Dalrymple’s home and, through a combination of energy modeling and field analysis, defines options and required steps toward net-zero site energy.
